ways, torte reform. the president brought in kathleen sebelius ahead of the trial association for 11 years. we need torte reform so the doctors don't have to order too many tests. the pre-existing conditions, i think, should be pooled to an assigned risk where they have to pay more, similar to what is current. i was able to get insurance when i was younger but the state required the insurance companies provide that pool. i'd also like to agree with the gentleman from pennsylvania about the federal reserve. i wonder if most americans see that it's a board of international bankers that decide our interest rates. host: reid, we have a lot of topics there. let's have the congressman respond. guest: reid, let's start with medical liability. you mentioned that. when the health care law was first being driven through congress in 2009, i remember being summoned to the white house, abdur-rahim was the chief of staff. he had -- rahm emanuel was the chief of staff. he had me and some other republicans up to chat and i raised the issue of medical liability reform in that meeting and rahm said we

that he had no idea that these problems were coming. we had kathleen sebelius come to the committee and say that everything was ready to go. here is the issue -- if you outlaw the kind of insurance people actually have, they won't be able to keep those plans. they passed a law three years ago to outlaw the kinds of insurance that people have in their surprise that people don't have that? we talked about that in the 2010 elections. we talked about it in the 2012 elections. we knew all of this was happening at the time. we heard all of the soaring rhetoric and all of these problems and now we see what is happening. the way i see it, there are only two explanations. either they were being dishonest or they are just incompetent. frankly, i don't know which one is the worse. i think the left -- i think they are learning a pretty valuable lesson here. i think the valuable lesson that we are learning here, unfortunately, with all the human collateral damage with the obamacare spectacle is that you don't shut out the opposition. you don't cram a bad bill into law. you do not say one thing w
